Prince George's Little Theatre showed courage in tackling The Importance of Being Earnest, which requires at least three settings for each act, a large costume wardrobe befitting Victorian gentry and a gifted cast to deliver Oscar Wilde's century-old dialogue. In this work, the great Irish poet and dramatist ridicules the pretentiousness of the British aristocracy. Tired of his country home, Jack Worthing arrives in London assuming the identity of a fictitious pleasure-seeking brother, Ernest.

On weekends through May 11, Bowie Community Theatre is offering what is often called one of the funniest plays in the English language, Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. With witticisms buried inside the dialogue-heavy play, Wilde's masterpiece is challenging. Still, the opening night audience seemed to enjoy it. Since its London debut in 1895, Wilde's last play has been constantly revived. A 1993 version starring Maggie Smith was a triumph in London, as was a New York revival directed by Tony Walton in 1996.

An exceptional version of Oscar Wilde's brilliant social satire, "The Importance of Being Earnest," is currently on stage at the Spotlighters Theatre through June 28.Directed with a delightfully droll hand, Nick Raye and his outstanding cast has captured the true spirit of Wilde's playful 1894 farce. Set by Raye in a contemporary limbo, Wilde's masterpiece -- generally acknowledged as the wittiest light comedy in the English language -- radiates with intelligence, poise and grace.Working from Wilde's own notes and a four-act version, part of the collection of the New York Public Library, Raye has restored much of the author's cleverly absurd lines, which have been deleted in other accounts.
